  • 5.
    • William Shakespeare probably began his education at the age of seven years old. Even though there is no record of him going to school, it is said that his father sent him to the Stratford Grammar School near his house on Henley St.
    • While in school, Shakespeare learned the basics; how to read and write from an ABC, or horn-book.
    • Shakespeare was removed from school around age thirteen because of his fathers social and financial difficulties.
    • Before he emerged again in the late 1580’s as a professional actor, there are suggestions that he may have worked as a lawyer, schoolmaster, or a glover with his father and brother, but no one is fully sure of what he did up until that point.

    • By the end of 1592, Shakespeare had become an established actor in London.
    • That same year, many of Shakespeare’s plays were already popular including Henry VI , The Comedy of Errors , and Titus Andronicus.
    • The theatres were closed since 1593 during the time of the plague, and it is likely that Shakespeare took time off to work on his non-dramatic poetry.
    • By the end of 1593, all of the hard work and dedication Shakespeare put into his work paid off; Southampton became Shakespeare’s patron. On April 18, 1593, Venus and Adonis was entered for publication, and Shakespeare made his formal debut as a poet.
    • In 1594, Shakespeare returned to the theatre and became a leading member of The Lord Chamberlain’s Men.

    • William Shakespeare died the year of 1616 at age 52.
    • The cause of his death is a mystery, but in a diary entry of John Ward, it tells us that Shakespeare drank too hard with a few other people, and he died of a fever.
    • Researchers found that people were beginning to get the “new fever,” also known as the typhus, the year that Shakespeare died.
